Relationships: Loving relationships permeate all we do. We practice forgiveness, acknowledging our own mistakes and expecting others to not be perfect either.

Authenticity: We work to create a welcoming, inclusive environment that is culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally sound. The message is sacred, the method is not.

Mission: All people matter to God and ought to matter to the church. Through our actions, we demonstrate that others’ needs are more important than our own; leading them toward Jesus through relationships and with respect to each person’s unique spiritual journey.

Discipleship: We desire for the Gospel to saturate every aspect of our lives as we pursue full devotion to Christ. Spiritual disciplines, intentional community, and servant leadership are all part of following the example that Jesus modeled.

Excellence: Excellence honors God and inspires people. We strive to do the best we can with what we have with the intent of showing others the excellence of our heavenly Father.

Christ-centered teaching: We value relevant, biblical teaching that demonstrates how to follow Christ at home and in our communities through the transformational power of the Gospel.

Humor: We serve a God of joy and believe that Jesus brings life to the full. We work hard and laugh harder, not taking ourselves too seriously while taking God seriously.

Grace: We freely admit failures and celebrate successes as we model the redemption and forgiveness that is offered through Jesus Christ.
